Last week I had the opportunity to stop in at
Howard University School of Divinity for the 5:30 PM
prayer. There was a mixed crowd of students and faculty gathered
in the Chapel.
Much to my surprise and delight, a trustee of the Consortium
the Rev. Robin Franklin-Vaughn was the preacher. She is the Episcopal/Anglican/Lutheran
chaplain at Howard University.
Her title shows the results of the ecumenical movement–she holds a combined position for the churches.
The point of her sermon that I recall now is that we all need a healing community. In particular, those who suffer divorce need that understanding to help them in difficult moments. And it is precisely in such moments that communal bonds are often severed. A point to ponder.
Hope all goew well as we are in the ‘midterm’ season.
